Another shrimp boat from the Bayou Bienvenue area, out east of New Orleans. Note the nets hanging high on either side of the boat. Those are butterfly nets. They hang out and down just below the surface of the water. The purpose is to catch shrimp swimming along the surface, usually with the help of a out-going tide.
That's opposed to the other kind of nets which drag along the bottom of the lakes, scooping up the delicacies.
In 2006, Louisiana shrimp landings totaled 135 million pounds (heads-off weight) and were valued at $144.8 million dockside.
